In My Hands

 

Lyrics

In my hands, Eve will find
That Adam sins for all mankind.
In my hands, wrath will come,
And Sadak will search for oblivion.

In my hands, Joshua will
Command the sun to stand still.
And in my hands, Satan presides
Over his fallen angel brides.

God is in my hands,
His world is at my fingertips:
In my dreams, he commands;
His all-consuming hand,
It grips and grips and grips.

In my hands, the Israelites’
Vengeance falls on Belshazzar’s heights;
And by the writing on the walls,
Darius climbs while Belshazzar falls.

God is in my hands,
His world is at my fingertips:
In my dreams, he commands;
His all-consuming hand,
It grips and grips and grips.

In my hands, Ninevah cowers
Beneath Babel’s screeching towers;
While Babylon starts to crack,
All around Daniel dressed in black.

In Hanging Gardens, anthems ring,
And my praises angels sing;
For long after I am gone,
My inspiration will live on.

Background Text

Between 1825 and 1835, John Martin reached the height of his career and prosperity. Always in the best company, he was handsome, well-dressed, vociferous yet charming, despite his somewhat radical stance. His studio was visited by royalty, and he counted as friends many of the leading authors, poets, artists, scientists, politicians and theologians of the day, including Romanticist landscape painters John Constable and J.M.W. Turner, scientists Humphry Davy and Michael Faraday, twice British Prime Minister and founder of the Metropolitan Police Force Sir Robert Peel, author Charles Dickens, and the Shelleys (Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe and novelist Mary, author of ‘Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus’). He rose to the situation provided by his increasing fame throughout Europe and became renowned throughout London for his genial and generous hospitality.
